I'm new to chickens. My first batch of hens are now 10 months old. Laying eggs like crazy (average a doz a day for 14 hens) and I'm loven' being around them...............or is it having them around me? But I've a question about cackling! I love to hear them cackle. Does a hen cackle to announce she's going to lay, that she's in the process of laying, or that she's just laid an egg?
